Statement on Signing the Hillory J. Farias and Samantha Reid Date-Rape 
Drug Prohibition Act of 2000

February 18, 2000

    Today I am pleased to sign into law H.R. 2130, the ``Hillory J. 
Farias and Samantha Reid Date-Rape Drug Prohibition Act of 2000.'' I 
applaud the sponsors of this important legislation.
    This legislation will, among other things, place gamma 
hydroxybutyric acid (GHB)--a drug that is abused for its psychoactive 
effects and, less frequently but more perniciously, used as a tool by 
sexual predators--in Schedule I of the Controlled Substances Act (CSA). 
Making GHB a Schedule I controlled substance appropriately reflects the 
Congress' judgment that GHB has a high potential for abuse by sexual 
predators; that its possession and distribution should therefore be 
prohibited; and that violators should be subject to stringent criminal 
    The Act directs the Secretary of Health and Human Services (HHS) to 
develop and implement a plan for a national campaign to educate young 
adults, youths, law enforcement personnel, educators, school nurses, 
rape victim counselors, and hospital emergency room personnel on: (1) 
the dangers of date-rape drugs; (2) the applicability of the CSA to such 
drugs, including penalties; (3) how to recognize signs that an 
individual may be a victim of such drugs, and (4) the appropriate 
response when an individual exhibits such symptoms. The Act also 
requires HHS to collect data on the incidence of date-rape drug abuse 
and report the information annually to the Congress.
    The Act will not impede ongoing research into the potential 
legitimate use of this drug to treat the special needs of those 
suffering from narcolepsy. Indeed, this Act creates a special exemption 
that provides that the manufacture and distribution of this drug for 
properly approved research purposes will be subject to the physical 
security requirements of Schedule III rather than Schedule I.
    In approving H.R. 2130, I note that section 8(c)(1) of the bill 
requires the Attorney General to submit to the Committees on the 
Judiciary of the Senate and the House of Representatives a report that 
sets forth the recommendations of a unit of the Drug Enforcement 
Administration, an entity within the Department of Justice. By mandating 
the disclosure of an internal Department recommendation, this provision 
infringes on my constitutional responsibility to preserve the 
confidentiality of executive branch deliberations. Accordingly, I shall 
construe the provision to be advisory, and I hereby direct all executive 
branch officials to do likewise.
    I would like to acknowledge the tireless efforts of those Members of 
Congress who brought about passage of this important legislation: 
Representatives Fred Upton, Sheila Jackson-Lee, Bart Stupak, Sherrod 
Brown, and Michael Bilirakis and also Senators Spencer Abraham and Orrin 
Hatch. Their efforts have strengthened the rights and safety of 
thousands of women, and we owe them a debt of gratitude for the 
leadership they have shown in bringing this issue to our Nation's 
                                            William J. Clinton
The White House,
February 18, 2000.

Note: H.R. 2130, approved February 18, was assigned Public Law No. 106-
172. This item was not received in time for publication in the 
appropriate issue.

Proclamation 7274--To Facilitate Positive Adjustment to Competition From 
Imports of Certain Circular Welded Carbon Quality Line Pipe

February 18, 2000

By the President of the United States

of America

A Proclamation

    1. On December 22, 1999, the United States International Trade 
Commission (USITC) transmitted to the President an affirmative 
determination in its investigation under section 202 of the Trade Act of 
1974, as amended (the ``Trade Act'') (19 U.S.C. 2252), with respect to 
imports of certain circular welded carbon quality line pipe (line pipe) 
provided for in subheadings 7306.10.10 and 7306.10.50 of the Harmonized 
Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS). The USITC determined that 
line pipe is being imported in such increased quantities as to be a 
substantial cause of serious injury or the threat of serious injury to 
the domestic industry producing a like or directly competitive article.
    2. Pursuant to section 311(a) of the North American Free Trade 
Agreement Implementation Act (the ``NAFTA Implementation Act'') (19 
U.S.C. 3371(a)), the USITC made negative findings with respect to 
imports of line pipe from Mexico and Canada. The USITC also transmitted 
to the President its recommendations made pursuant to section 202(e) of 
the Trade Act (19 U.S.C. 2252(e)) with respect to the action that would 
address the serious injury or threat thereof to the domestic industry 
and be most effective in facilitating the efforts of the domestic 
industry to make a positive adjustment to import 
    3.Pursuant to section 203 of the Trade Act (19 U.S.C. 2253), and 
after taking into account the considerations specified in section 
203(a)(2) of the Trade Act, I have determined to implement action of a 
type described in section 203(a)(3). Pursuant to section 312(a) of the 
NAFTA Implementation Act (19 U.S.C. 3372(a)), I have determined that 
imports of line pipe from Mexico, considered individually, do not 
contribute importantly to the serious injury, or threat of serious 
injury, found by the USITC, and that imports from Canada, considered 
individually, do not contribute importantly to such injury or threat. 
Accordingly, pursuant to section 312(b) of the NAFTA Implementation Act 
(19 U.S.C. 3372(b)), I have excluded line pipe the product of Mexico or 
Canada from the action I am taking under section 203 of the Trade Act.
